40th Anniversary and Volunteer Appreciation Banquet
Wow! What a Pentecost celebration we had last Sunday. You looked great in all the red you wore. Our worship was intense and filled with the powerful and loving presence of the Holy Spirit. Your feedback on the day has been wonderful to read. Let’s come together and do it again this Sunday. By the way, we’re keeping the red ritual arts for a few weeks, so feel free to wear red again. I look forward to seeing you in church this Sunday.
Joey Bishop was our first winner of the “Fill out your Attendance Sheet” drawing. I’ll be awarding another prize to this week’s drawing winner on Sunday as we encourage each attendee to fill out an attendance sheet every week. During the week, we draw from the completed sheets and announce the weekly prize winner in the next Sunday Worship Celebration. You must be present to win. So even if it’s obvious that you’re with us – singer, usher, acolyte, etc. fill out your attendance slip and place it in the offering bucket. Thank you so much.
Remember our 40th Anniversary and Volunteer Appreciation Dinner for June 23, 2017. This is a Friday evening and the banquet will begin at 6:30PM. Reservations have now closed. This event is a joint venture between our Board of Directors and the Worship Planning Team. I hope many of you will be here to celebrate with us.
It’s Pride season and we want to participate. We will present our Liturgy of the Rainbow on Wednesday, June 21 at 6:30PM. I hope you will help us spread the word about this event, be here and bring some friends. It’s a great time for us to show our open door welcome to the entire community.
Finally, for today, we have growing interest in Children’s Ministry, specifically Children’s Church. If you are interested in working with this ministry, please contact me. Working with children at Holy Cross MCC requires a background screening which must be completed in advance.
Thanks for all you do to help spread the message: You are loved. You are worthy. You are welcome. Have a blessed week and remember to be here on Sunday, and bring someone with you.
